Billionaire to Build New Titanic for 2016

Billionaire to Build New Titanic for 2016Submit Comment
Australian real estate billionaire Clive Palmer announced that he's planning to build a replica of the Titanic and have it ready for its maiden voyage in late 2016. It will sail from England to New York, the same path the first Titanic was taking.

"It will be every bit as luxurious as the original Titanic, but will have state-of-the-art 21st-century technology and the latest navigation and safety systems," Palmer said in a statement. He called the project "a tribute to the spirit of the men and women who worked on the original Titanic."

Palmer is planning to include all modern technology, but will still make it look like the original design. For example: Despite being diesel-powered, the new ship will still have four smoke stacks, like the coal-powered original, but they will be purely decorative.

Many are skeptical that this is a good marketing plan, since the last Titanic crashed into an iceberg, causing the deaths of more than 1,500.

Not enought with Ego Cameron traveling to the deep and the far space, but this imbecile throwing money for just a stupid boat that for sure with the economy in the toilet, will be impossible to be build it on time.

how about now some *sshole trying to build the Hindenburg or anything catasthrophic event of the last 20 years, ah?

"Many are skeptical that this is a good marketing plan, since the last Titanic crashed into an iceberg, causing the deaths of more than 1,500."

Because it wasn't the frigid water, the ship's speed, the lighting conditions, the lack of life boats, the farther southernly spread of icebergs, or an entire host of other sh*t that is now so well known, it's featured thirty times a year, every year.

If you guys didn't already know, this guy is a douche. Every few months he says he going to build something fantastic etc but it never comes to fruition because the dude is a fatass. His ego is almost bigger than his multiple chins. f*ck THIS FGT.

Put all the technological advances in this ship all you want, it still won't make up for human error.

Can you just imagine what will happen if this one crashes too?

I'm so there. If it's an exact replica, they need to be short on lifeboats. I don't care who I have to c*nt punt when we sink, I'm saving my ass.
